From The New York Shitty Inbox: Fun With Bloomblight

I didn’t have my camera with me when I was out today, but I thought I’d give you a heads-up on something rather amusing.  If you take a stroll over to Eckford Street and Greenpoint Avenue, you’ll notice that the construction fence around the vacant lot on the southwest corner has been replaced by a nice chain link number.  You’ll also notice that this new fencing affords a superb view of two tall, yellow, black-tongued denizens of our fair neighborhood.
I nailed them to the inside of the construction fence about a year and a half ago, but moved out of the adjacent property shortly thereafter and figured that the next tenant had removed them.  Now that the fence is gone, I can see that my replacements were lazy, not all that handy, or blessed with a decent sense of humor.  In any event, I’m glad to see my pets looking healthy.

Naturally I headed down the aforementioned intersection without delay.

The creatures of which C wrote were not at all difficult to locate.

Genuine Greenpoint giraffes!

A big New York Shitty shout-out of gratitude goes out to C for tipping me off to this. It made my day! Well, after the Bushwick bunnies.

  2. That is my backyard! I live with those giraffes, and I love them! Thank you person who used to live here who nailed them up to the wall! Since the construction wall is gonna come down soon, I’m trying to figure out how to keep the giraffes and put them on the fence. 🙂

Tell me what you're thinking...
